Good Morning- I apologize for taking so long to contact you regarding my new pup. With a new pup and everything else, things have been crazy. She is doing great and she is quite the little beauty. She came out of the crate at the  airport all smiles and looking for trouble. Eugenia and I have…

It has been almost a year since I have talked to you. I picked up my dog, Gracie, from you 1 year ago. She is amazing. I have trained many dogs myself, and have never trained such a hungry, thinking animal. Early,I made a cardinal mistake. I shot over the dog as a puppy. Instant Gun…

First I want to apologize if my English isn’t correct ;-).  I heard from Alessa you asked for the Austrian Beech-Puppies, how they are. Well, I thought I send you some infos and pics of Lilyen (Leadhills Hunting Glacial Lilyen). She’s now 10 months old and develops very well, a tall and beautiful bitch (the most beautiful in my…

Just a quick update on our 14 month old male and a couple of pics from hunting in South Dakota and with the family. This is Barley out of Bracken and Belle that we picked up last December. Great temperament with the wife and our two kids (Mia 4yrs and Mason 2yrs old). Barley is real quiet…

We picked up Sadie in September, she is out of a Meg X Spud litter and we have been impressed!She is such a magnificent animal, she has great lines and style and is so muscular. Her temperament is outstanding, she is so calm for only being 6 month old. At the same time when you show her a…

Sadie is 13 months old and has been a pleasure to have around hunting and with my family. Her parents were Brambles and Clyde. She is definitely a dog to be proud of. This is my first hunting dog and the quality of your kennel is becoming more and more apparent when I compare her trainability to some…

Rick Clark, Emporia, KS

I noticed you don’t have any waterfowl pictures in you’re Puppy References, so I thought I’d send some and tell you a little about Emma (Brambles x Clyde). She is my 3rd Labrador (1st British). I’ve trained all three myself, and Emma was by far the easiest to train. She came as advertised, biddable,calm, intelligent, soft mouth,…

Don

Parker is almost 6 months and he’s just a shade over 47 lbs. If you look at the toy dog in the 12 wks pic and compare it to the 6 month a pic you can see a size difference. When we first got him he could barely carry that toy. Here is a list of…

Thanks again,

Sorry it took me so long to write.  The TT puppies Jim Sturgill and I bought from you in December ’06 have been a joy. Jim’s black bitch (by Spud) has been one of the most natural bird dogs I’ve seen in 34 years of dealing with bird dogs of all breeds. My yellow (photo attached) has been…

Here’s a picture of Max (Beech x Brambles, 11/07 litter) and Gracie (William x Bute, ’06 litter) at a recent trip to Lake of the Woods, Ontario. Gracie belongs to the Dr Bill Bondurant family, also of Oklahoma City. Gracie’s first season ended on a great note. She really started to get after it, so we are excited…

Here are two pics of opening weekend in northern Oklahoma. Great morning! Lots of ducks and the topper was the dog work put in by Gracie. 12 ducks, 12 retrieves. 4 cripples, 2 of which were diving. For a young hunter, repetitions in the field are the key. This will be here first heavy season…

Nick Kaiser, OKC

I just returned from an annual hunting and fishing trip to Lake of the Woods in Ontario. It was Max’s first real hunting trip and he did not disappoint. The instincts he shows at 10 months are impressive. From the start, I had considered sending him off to one of your recommended trainers, but the sheer joy of…

A quick note. Early morning before seeing patients. 30 MPH wind out of the south. 3 of us went to our marsh and stood on one of the open areas. Gracie sat on a fallen tree for 20 minutes without budging. 18 ducks in 20 minutes and gracie cleared the hole once I released her from…

Our season is in full swing and Gracie is learning every outing! She has had  2 – 12 duck hunts and 1 -10 duck hunt with a number of 4 and 5 retrieve hunts mixed in. She is really picking up different scenarios of cripples, marking and long drops. She is so steady, I just cannot believe…

Hope all is well. I wanted to send you a picture of Moose the Beech/Butte pup I bought from you Christmas ’06. As you know I live in downtown Chicago and do not get to hunt as often as I would like. I have taken Moose duck hunting on several occasions and he is solid, however his upland…

Thought you might like an update on Riley. He is doing great. Shot a lot of birds over him this season and he really seemed to just turn on in Dec. Like he just really got it one day. We are working on handling now and he is quickly picking up hand signals and getting better every day.  Attached are a…
